Gnam Gnam Gelato & Bistro

Selim Oztalay had been having sweet dreams of opening his own Italian gelato shop for many years. Growing up in Germany allowed him to not only be exposed to a variety of cultures, but also a variety of artisan gelato flavors that he missed when he moved to the United States. Hoping to expose American tongues to fine Italian flavors, he opened Gnam Gnam Gelato & Bistro. Named after the Italian saying for "delicious," Gnam Gnam makes visitors say just that with a rotating selection of more than 80 fresh to order inventive gelato flavors made fresh and onsite daily. Gelato is a healthy alternative to ice cream is half the calories and half the fat of ice cream. Servers heap scoops of the bistro’s namesake treat disguised as eggnog, tiramisu, and Nutella. Those with larger hankerings can be sated with cooked to order entrees from the full menu which features gourmet sandwiches and wraps such as the San Francisco chicken wrap, cranberry turkey sandwich, and California BLT. For a healthier take, they also serve up fresh salads such as the flavorful Bistro Salad and crispy chicken salad. Gnam Gnam's menu is filled with a variety of options from hearty meals to delightfully refreshing deserts.
